PHOENIX - Former State Representative Jerry Weiers allegedly went to great lengths to find a parking spot for his motorcycle and it was all caught on video by his opponent for Mayor.
Last March, Weiers was seen on security cameras moving a large planter at the State Capitol by wrapping it with a rope and pulling it with his truck in broad daylight.
The planters were put there as security barriers around the Capitol complex.
Weiers admits he did it. His public relations people tried their best to deflect the issue.
"If this is what campaigns are about, moving planters, this is a new level of silliness in Arizona," said Weiers' spokesman Jason Rose.
Manny Cruz, who is running for Mayor of Glendale against Weiers, released the video to the public. He believes Weiers did it because the planter was blocking him from parking his motorcycle in front of the House of Representatives building. "This action is unbecoming of an elected official and people need to know about Jerry's temperament," Cruz said.
ABC15 also found out there is no law enforcement agency investigating the situation.
Because it happened on Capitol property, and since Weiers was a Representative at the time, it's being handled by the Speaker of the House, Republican Andy Tobin. We made several calls to find out more about what is being done about it, but did not get an answer.
House Minority Leader Democrat Chad Campbell released a statement saying:
There are so many things wrong with this situation it is difficult to know where to start. What else is happening in the House of Representatives that we don't know about?
